Addiction has far more involved within the brain than nicotine. Hookah is only as addictive as you let it become.

Edit: I should also note that I had probably a two-month period where I just plain didnt smoke, went from my normal 2-5 a day to 0 a day for two months. Wasnt out of town, had a full stock of supplies. Dont see many "addicts" able to drop their habit for 2 months without the urge to start back up in a much shorter time span. *shrug*
Bold parts +1. I smoked everyday, sometimes twice a day for about a year to a year and a half. Took off for 5 years. Talked about hookah because I love the tradition of it and the hobby of it, but didn't need it. I smoke once a day now and if I miss a day so be it. I don't need it, I just enjoy it.
